Why I write Clean Fiction!

Why I write Clean Fiction!?

Hey! Welcome to today’s stop on the Clean Fiction Blog Tour!

I have been writing stories for as long as I can remember and won my first writing contest when I was 8. It was for a tall tale about what happened to all the books at the library. I literally made up the most ridiculous things I could think of and won! The coolest part was that I got to have lunch with an author, and it was super inspiring! I didn’t even like his book, but I realized I wanted to tell stories. If people could love the ridiculous, I had found myself a career!

I write clean fiction because that’s what I want to read. I have a difficult time picking books. I love speculative fiction from middle earth to the most epic steampunk dirigible! I like the idea of YA books, but have such a brutal time finding ones that aren’t so dark and creepy or full of romance that goes waaaay beyond what I am comfortable with. I typically read middle-grade books because they are less likely to have that, but even in younger books, there can be some pretty evil stuff!

I have 4 kiddos from 8-14 and I want them to enjoy the most incredibly imaginative worlds without worrying that they are being stained with things that don’t belong there. Romance and horror are genres that many enjoy, but I don’t.

So, I write fantastical adventures that are fun and clean so you can read them to very small children, but adults still enjoy them.

I thought I’d tell you about one today and save another for next week when y’all are stopping back here for another blog tour day! Yay!

The first full-length book I wrote is called West & Windy! I did a challenge called NANOWRIMO where you a write 50, 000-word novel in November! And I finished!

Meet West & Windy:

Fox siblings West and Windy are on the run from Bruin King Rancid who will stop at nothing to capture them and strong-arm them out of their kingdom. With the help of their rabbit aunt Dandelion and her heliox-balloon airship, they must learn to work together to rescue the true King and Queen. With an unforgettable crew of insane critters, monkey pirates, and ninja bats, this Steampunk adventure is perfect for fans of Narnia, Redwall, and The Green Ember! Hold your breath! You’re in for a wild ride!

  1. Being able to write fiction that everyone can read is important. I understand the place for books that speak to more adult concepts, but we need something to read to our kiddos too. Though I suppose if it’s just a line here and they, it’s easier to censor it out when you’re reading aloud than to ff when watching a movie.

    But yeah, I relate to your cause. My wife and I are having a baby girl soon, after all. 😀
